Happy Birthday to me (oh yeah and to John too!)

There has been a lot of press about John's 70th birthday tomorrow. I personally have not been getting wrapped up into it. I think because it sort of makes me sad to think that people all over are celebrating, but the one we are celebrating can't be with us. But I do want to take a little time to appriecate John. Since this is my birthday weekend as well, I am going to be busy and not near the computer. I wanted to post something. So I have posted a copy of the Apple Scruff newsletter from October 1970 where Lucy has drawn a nice picture of John to celebrate his 30th birthday. The Apple Scruffs put out these newsletters every month to discuss the goings on (and gossip) at Apple. The Beatles themselves would buy a copy off the girls and were said to enjoy reading it. I also posted a Fred Seaman photo of John that is really bad quality in hopes that I can find a better scan out there somehwere. :) For great John Lennon birthday photos from 1980, please go check out the Beatles Photo Blog!


  1. Gave you a little shout out on my blog! Keep up the great work!

  2. Thank you brit fancy! I am glad that you like the blog and it is so nice that someone feels the same way that I do about the big hub-bub with John's birthday.
